Recorded at "Salle de L'Arsenal", February 1999, Metz, France.

"- Why did you record The Rite Of Spring on your own? Can one speak of obstinacy here?
- There's always an element obstinacy when you're dealing with someone or something that's very special to you- in this case, a work. For me, "The Rite" is very special project. I remember when i was nineteen and alone in a hall of residence at Düsseldorf University. I was at an all-time low, very gloomy, reely deppressed. I couln't even move my fingers, still less play the piano. The one evening i heard "The Rite" on the radio. The music brought me back to life, restored my love of music. It gave me my confidence. "The Rite" represents all of this for me. So, yes, i think you can speak of obstinacy."
(From the interview with Fazıl Say)
